There are a lot of reasons to use natural starters (which are yeast, after all, just naturally occuring) but economy isn't one of them. You can use a very small amount of commercial yeast if you use a slightly longer rise period, and yeast, in bulk, is not expensive.

I started with yeast a couple of years ago. Then I tried SF sourdough in my NY style. After some tinkering, it worked great. The taste was wonderful.
Then, I caught the WFO bug. I stuck with the SF (San Francisco) strain then somewhere down the line I switched to Camaldoli. Very nice.

My advice is to buy a strong bona fide working starter and take good care of it. You only have to buy it once. I'm learning that dough management is critical and has a huge impact on the taste.

I wish you luck. Keep us apprised.
